ELF Cosmetics Summer Beauty Boost Kit

I must admit I have never tried ELF Cosmetics before but I think this is a great deal and thought some of you might be interested. While supplies last you can purchase the Summer Beauty Boost Kit (a $620 value) for only $20. The kit includes these products:

  • ELF Mineral Booster #6601
  • ELF Mineral Bronzer #6403
  • ELF Mineral Gloss in Au Naturale #6732
  • ELF Studio Blush Brush
  • ELF Total Face Brush (all ELF products together are a $20 value)
  • A certificate good for an American Laser Body Contouring Treatment ($500 value)
  • Neocutis Journee Bio-Restorative Day Cream with PSP and SPF 30 ($75 value)
  • Three Golden Bangles ($25 value)


See their site for further details. 100% of the proceeds from this sale go to the Bottomless Closet. The Bottomless Closet helps “disadvantaged New York City women become self-sufficient through a comprehensive program that begins with business attire and interview preparation and continues with professional development, financial management and personal enrichment.” I found some coupon codes that you can use on your purchase (only one code per order): Code EGSPBRU for a free 12 piece makeup brush set ($12 value); code WINNERELF for $7.50 off your purchase (covers the $6.95 shipping and a bit more); or spend $25 and enter code EGMMRDC to receive a free “mini makeup” and a $25 restaurant dining card (specifics of gifts aren’t listed but I think it is a gift card; this code expires May 16).

I know many readers must be wondering when Clinique will offer its next Bonus Time. I know Nordstrom will offer this at the end of May but prior to that I have no knowledge of any being online. A helpful reader wrote in to tell me that Bergdorf Goodman is starting a Clinique bonus on May 5 that will run for one week but BG does not traditionally offer these online. I will of course let you know if any appear online as soon as I find out.
